Dr. Cliff Bennett wanted a change of scenery for himself and his two daughters after the death of his wife, so he moved his family to a beautiful fixer upper in the countryside of California; but the changes they found were more than they bargained for.
  2. Simulacra   Through 10/29/2017   Star Theater  840 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd SW  Atlanta                 Written & directed by Terence E. Jackson  October 6 – October 29 “Simulacra” refers to a simulation of realness without reality, an altered state of reality. The unexpected return of a man to his family home, sets in motion a psychological battle between himself and his siblings. Simulacra explores themes of family, power and intergenerational trauma; how our perception ultimately shapes our perspectives and interactions with those we love. The play entertains a recurring thought: “Sometimes, the ties that bind us are the very ones that eventually tear us apart.”
  3. BOY Through 10/15 at Theatrical Outfit 84 Luckie St. NW Atlanta  1968-1990. Davenport, Iowa and Boston, Massachusetts.

A renowned doctor convinces the parents of a male infant to raise their son as a girl after an accident, and years later, the repercussions and realities of that choice unfold and alter lives. With humor and tenderness, Boy explores the tricky terrain of loving oneself and others amidst the confusion of gender identity as one very special young person simply yearns to be himself.
